Sher 8

jis ḳhātir maiñ bhulā baiThā thā apne aap ko

ab usī ke bhuul jaane hunar bhī dekhnā

jis ki KHatir main bhula baiTha tha apne aap ko

ab usi ke bhul jaane ka hunar bhi dekhna

use ab bhuul jaane irāda kar liyā hai

bharosa ġhāliban ḳhud par ziyāda kar liyā hai

use ab bhul jaane ka irada kar liya hai

bharosa ghaaliban KHud par ziyaada kar liya hai

vo ek shaḳhs ki manzil bhī rāstā bhī hai

vahī duā bhī vahī hāsil-e-duā bhī hai

wo ek shaKHs ki manzil bhi rasta bhi hai

wahi dua bhi wahi hasil-e-dua bhi hai

lagtā nahīñ ki us se marāsim bahāl hoñ

maiñ kyā karūñ ki thoḌā pāgal to maiñ bhī huuñ

lagta nahin ki us se marasim bahaal hon

main kya karun ki thoDa sa pagal to main bhi hun

diloñ se ḳhauf nikaltā nahīñ azāboñ

zamīñ ne oḌh liye sar par āsmāñ phir se

dilon se KHauf nikalta nahin azabon ka

zamin ne oDh liye sar par aasman phir se
